Happy Birthday 49th Birthday to Junior Seau (Video Tribute)

January 19, 2018

Junior Seau‘s 49th birthday would have been today. Like Tony Gwynn was to the Padres, Junior embodied what it was like to be a Charger and represent the city of San Diego on a national stage. He is greatly missed and will always hold a special place in the hearts of all Charger fans. Enjoy these four videos. Two of them show you the intensity he brought to the field…


I Don’t Hate the Chargers, I’m Sadly Indifferent

January 1, 2018

This 2017 calendar year was horribly brutal for San Diego Sports. Not that any particular year in the past has been great to America’s Finest City. Fans are still waiting for a major sports championship, which would be the first one for the city since the Bolts won the 1963 AFL Championship, now 55 years ago. San Diego is beautiful, but as lovely as the city can be, the political…


Chargers Quickly Becoming the Laughing-Stock of the NFL

October 7, 2017

Thanks Dean. We really appreciate how you have taken one of San Diego’s prized jewels and turned them into a circus act in Los Angeles. No, I take that back. A circus has organization and is a well-oiled machine that takes numerous competent individuals to run it successfully. The Chargers are more like a freak show now. That is the simple truth. Renting a stadium, in a market where you…


An Open Letter to Philip Rivers

September 16, 2017

I know most San Diegans do not want to read anything about the Chargers. In fact, most don’t even want to see the lightning bolt logo on your Twitter feed. It is totally understandable. Dean Spanos royally screwed over the city of San Diego. While I transition to becoming a much more casual fan of the team, I understand those who want nothing to do with them. It was heartbreaking…


The Chargers Broke My Heart, And I am NOT Alone

September 2, 2017

Roughly nine months have passed since Dean Spanos made the decision to slither off to Los Angeles. This move was totally money driven, as the worth of his football club has increased. There is no doubt that the Chargers have more value now that they play in the second largest city in the United States. A man with an extreme amount of money, that has a net worth of $2.4…


Potential New Teams for Ex-Chargers Fans (Revised)

August 18, 2017

                                                                       Credit: San Diego Reader   For two years, the fans of the San Diego Chargers had to endure the tyranny of the NFL and owner Dean Spanos. Was the future of the team in L.A….


Catching up on the San Diego Sports Scene

April 29, 2017

I haven’t typed words on a computer that wasn’t an email or a Google search for months, so I’d thought I’d knock the rust off the way I like to be. Not too serious. So bear with me and keep reading, or bookmark this page and comeback when your bowels take over. The San Diegan Sports landscape has changed tremendously since my last article attempt in the blogosphere (May 2016)….


Philip Rivers: The Reason You Shouldn’t “Hate-Watch” the Chargers

April 25, 2017

I know, I know. Another article about the Chargers leaving and why you should or shouldn’t root for them. Well, this article is a little different for one reason: Philip Rivers. The kid from Alabama, who was traded to the Chargers on draft day, quickly became one of the most adored San Diegans of his era. You all remember the humbling that the Manning family put on the Chargers on…


I Still Cringe When I See a Lightning Bolt Logo

April 13, 2017

After being a faithful supporter of the San Diego Chargers, like many native San Diegans, my life was recently turned upside down. The team is no longer in America’s Finest City, and that is a sad fact that is still very hard to come to grips with. My father taught me to love the team. He had season tickets for many years in the 80’s, and it is then and…


A Message to All Chargers Fans (Current or Former)

April 9, 2017

I know what you’re saying. “A Charger article on East Village Times. What is this, 2015?” Yes I know, you haven’t seen hardly any Chargers-related articles since they packed their bags and did LT’s electric slide all the way to Los Angeles. Many former Chargers fans were faced with a tough question recently. Will I support the Los Angeles Chargers? For most people, the question has already been answered (for…


If You are Pissed at LT, You Aren’t the Only One

March 1, 2017

Let me first start of by saying that LaDainian Tomlinson is one of my favorite all-time San Diego Chargers in the franchises’ history. He exemplified what it meant to be a Chargers’ player, and he will never be questioned for his endless contributions on the field for my former beloved football team. However, that team is gone. They left town. Which makes them dead to me. Their new name, which I…
